Online Youth Leadership Program – Batch 2 – US, India, Singapore, Africa and Dubai
Leadership Skills allow a child to take lead position and make things happen. They learn to take responsibilities much earlier in their lives. They feel more confident to stand up for their rights, express their ideas or views, make their way through conflicts and take appropriate decisions. Not surprisingly, as they reach the end of their primary education and foray into middle school, they become more interested in leading and taking charge of certain duties in schools.
Typically, they start working towards grasping opportunities to become a school caption, house captain, school prefect, Head boy or girl, etc. The word ‘Leader’ or ‘Leadership’ are so spoken easily that very few understand that it is not about a position or power given in the hands of a child to manage a certain role or class. It is building that innate ability to influence and bring people together to work for a common objective. Nirmiti Academy’s Youth Leadership program builds that trajectory for each child to reach his destination.
The words ‘leader’ and ‘leadership’ are spoken so easily that very few truly understand what they actually mean. Many confuse leadership with position or power. However, in children, leadership tends to indicate the innate ability of a child to gather different people and help everyone work together towards a singular goal.
Our 2nd batch of Youth Leadership program started on 13th January with a bang! This program opened doors to students from varied countries – The US, Dubai, Singapore, Africa and India. This program took a deliberate and a more scientific approach to sensitize each child of the importance and the need of developing leadership and life skills at such an early age!
Under the guidance and mentorship of Dipti Deepak, Nirmiti Academy’s Founder Director, the students were at their biggest high while learning to differentiate themselves with each skill – regulate their emotions, set themselves out of their comfort zone, nurture positive mindset, apply problem-solving techniques to real life situations, build confidence and express their ideas freely, and more… in short, Youth Leadership program sensitizes and facilitates positive change in their perspectives, values and behavior.
Parents bring up their children in an environment enriched with many opportunities to hone their kinesthetic, linguistic, and numerical skills but many neglect the need to equip them with leadership skills that makes them face situations in an appropriate manner. Today’s competitive and ever-changing world has brought in multi-faceted challenges, expectations and opportunities and the child is expected to cope up with such problems and demands at hand. The 2nd batch of Youth Leadership was curated to accentuate the skills and the right attitude in each child.
Angira, a student from Kerala, India joined our program with an objective to bring change in her overall personality. Roleplays and other reflective exercises prepared her to express her thoughts openly. She also went onto pursing Public Speaking program to enhance her speaking skills as part of program design.
